Sennepen omtales slik på Mailles egen hjemmeside:

The seductive aroma hits you as soon as you prise open a pot of Maille’s black truffle mustard. Served fresh from the pump at the Maille boutique in its trademark black stoneware jar, just a small spoonful will take a simple grilled steak to another level. Quite simply, truffles send some of us into a gastronomic frenzy, and that includes truffle mustard.

Hunting for truffles is about as exciting as it gets for your truffle lover. A heady aroma fills the air: earthy, garlicky, mushroomy, heavenly. Not that anybody can do this, you need a specialist for that. A man and his dog – or pig, to be precise.

Here, ancient villages are built into steep cliffs, imposing châteaux sit alongside simple Romanesque churches and dramatic limestone gorges interrupt endless old-growth forests. It’s in these very forests that you’ll find one of the world’s most luxurious foods, black truffles, costing up to 1000 Euros a kilo.

Their precise whereabouts are a closely guarded secret only the rabassiers (truffle hunters) know where to look. The truffles begin to smell only when they are ready to pick, found between 5cm-40cm below the ground, usually near the base Trøffel_3-200x300of oak trees. Truffles are available throughout the seasons, but they are at their most intense in January and February, when the truffle hunters are at their busiest.
